Tonight's hot topic; "Mike From Back East" is slammed by the R posters on C-D. His crime; reporting the facts. The McCain butt-boys on this site will not like having to read the facts posted about their boy. Anyone who does so will be flamed and flamed hard.

The facts tend to upset their worldview which tells them that we've already found the WMD in Iraq and our troops were treated like liberators.

Great post Mike!

There will be plenty of people questioning the patriotism of those that don't support McCain. Go ahead and prepare yourselves, Obama fans.

If you followed any of my postings, you'd know that I dont think "hero" status is any qualification to be president. An aware, yeah, but president, no, it simply should add to ones' character.

That does nothing to say that Obama is tested and tried, because he also is not.

Every time Wesley Clark opens his mouth sewer poopy comes out. He is a trouble maker who got caught making poor decisions and was demoted.

He is a trouble maker who wants to be something so badly he will badmouth anyone.

He has ZERO value to anyone. He has a lot of room to talk.

But Obama is.

McCain was a military officer and an admired hero (except by some who don't comprehend the military experience), and Obama was neither.

Does this help clarify the comparison?


Are you a former hillary supporter rooting for McCain?

And again, we have TWO candidates, and we must choose who has more experience.. PERIOD. If claiming McCain does not have experience holds a valid point, you then must look at the alternative and use their great experience as an example of what "experience" looks like. When I look over at the other side, (Obama) I still dont see experience.

No one is arguing here (well at least I'm not) that being a war hero means that McCain would make a great president. What I'm simply saying is that we have a choice of two, and McCain clearly has more experience then Obama, so why point out that JUST McCain is "untested and untried" if indeed neither one of them are?

I concur -- except for the unfortunate "sewer poopy" phrase.

Speaking of "untested and unprepared": what the hell ever convinced Clark that HE should run for President, other than his own overweening ambition?

Clark is a bad actor in search of a paying gig. He belongs in summer stock, moving scenery.
